Now, You Too Can Join in the Fun!

First of all, Quentin Tarantino on American Idol? WTF? Well, at least he stayed brutally honest without being overtly vicious (then again, if his backhanded compliments didn’t fool me, they probably didn’t fool the contestants either).

Richard Cohen’s got an interesting (and potentially controversial) column today. He comments on little George’s new “crusade” to, as Duh-bya puts it, “change the world”:

“... it explains, as nothing else can, just why Bush is so adamantly steadfast about Iraq and why he simply asserts what is not proved or just plain untrue — the purported connection between Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda, for instance, or why Hussein was such a threat, when we have it on the word of David Kay and countless weapons inspectors that he manifestly was not. Bush talks as if only an atheist would demand proof when faith alone more than suffices. He is America’s own ayatollah.”

Hail Eris!And finally, I’m toying with the idea of opening up Prometheus Unleashed to more than just my ramblings, in effect making it the official mouthpiece of the Promethean Cabal of the POEE — which may, in turn, allow the latter to develop into something more than just an abstract idea. Not that I’m planning to stop my own personal commentary, but I thought it might be nice to have the occasional contribution from one of our regular readers. I don’t expect that contributors will necessarily agree with me on everything — in fact, I would expect quite a bit of disagreement in some cases — but I will lay down a few ground rules. First of all, I expect folks to be civil — if not to the outside world, then at least to each other. Second, I don’t want to see a bunch of rebuttal entries — commentary on specific entries should be limited to the comments section. And third, as Editor, I reserve the right to edit, delete, or modify entries at will; in fact, as anal-retentive as I am, I can pretty much guarantee it. As for other rules, I’ll make them up as I go along.

Of course, there may be nobody out there who’s interested in piling on, in which case this will remain exactly as it is, and I’m fine with that. But if you’d like to join in (and membership does not imply a requirement to participate), then hit the little button on the left there and let me know (be sure to send along whatever bio information you’d like to include in your author writeup). There may end up being other benefits to membership, but I haven’t thought of any just yet (though I am open to suggestions).
